Laureate Community Academy is a one-form entry primary school.

Admission number

The Academy has a Published Admission Number of 30 for entry in Reception.

The Academy will accordingly admit this number of pupils to Reception each year if there are sufficient applications. Where fewer applicants than the published admission number for the Reception year are received, the Academy Trust will offer places at the Academy to all those who have applied. 


Although the Academy will decide its own admissions, the local authority co-ordinates all Normal Year of Entry Admissions in its area, and will communicate all admission decisions to parents. In-year applications should be made directly to the Academy.  

Procedures for applying to Laureate are explained in the publication Admission to Schools in Suffolk.  Parents should make themselves familiar with this information and take particular note of the definitions provided, dates and deadlines, which apply to Laureate admission arrangements unless stated otherwise in this document.   

Applications must be made using the Suffolk Normal Year of Entry Application Form (CAF1), which is available from Suffolk County Council on 0345 600 0981 (local rate) or Laureate. Applications can also be made online at

No completed forms will be accepted at the school. There is also the ADM1 for in-year applications. The deadline for ordinary Reception admissions will be that published in the Admission to Suffolk Schools Publication.
